CLIS ALA Conference Mixer – Sunday,
June 24 at RFD Washington
Sunday, June 24, 2007
The CLIS Chapter of the University of Maryland Alumni Association, the CLIS Student Chapter of the ALA and the Dean of the College of Information Studies invite all members of the CLIS community to join us for a friendly gathering during the Washington D.C. ALA Conference. We will get together on Sunday, June 24 2007, from 5PM to 7PM [or later] at D.A.’s RFD Washington. We will provide some light snacks. There will be a broad selection of craft beer available on tap and in bottles on a cash bar basis.
In addition to having an opportunity to network and catch up with CLIS alumni from all over the world, we will be celebrating several events: The CLIS Chapter has been awarded a grant from Alumni Associations International to start a newsletter for alumni, and we’ll have a representative from that organization to make a presentation. In addition, we will recognize Alice Hagemeyer (’76) – the first CLIS alumna to be named an honorary lifetime member of the American Library Association.
